75-year lease of Dix property secured

Nancy McFarlane: Today Governor Bev Perdue, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and I signed the 75-year lease of the Dorthea Dix property for future use as a park. This is an incredible day for our city, the surrounding region and our state. The Dix property as a destination park is a wonderful addition to our city and state’s quality of life amenities. Thank you to all stakeholders and for critical citizen support that made this tremendous partnership with the state possible.
